Pat Boone may not be a descendant of Daniel Boone, but what about competitive eater Dale "Mouth of the South" Boone?
While in Anchorage, Boone consumed a world-record 28 Glacier Brewhouse reindeer sausages in 10 minutes. The record still stands.
It was during that trip through Alaska that Boone obtained his trademark coonskin cap, a staple of his competitive-eating persona. Brash and confident, Boone claims he's a direct descendant of the legendary explorer Daniel Boone. [Link]
